Photographs I took before I was a photographer
6 years ago I had an interest in photography and no training in it at all. This is back before my degree and as a nieve young man I didn't even think about being a professional photographer.
Getting Great Holiday Shots
Dear Holiday Slideshows, I have sat through many of you in my short time on this planet and it begs me of one question. Why are there lots of bad photos? Could we not make better images to show our friends and family, as a collection of photographers can we make it better. In fact everyone with a phone understands photography to some degree.
How to Get a Film Look on a Digital Camera
So Digital certainly has a look to it, which is slowly being taken over by people wanting a “Film Look” First off, if you want a film look you could shoot film. That is certainly an option, but that is quite an expensive option, in the UK it is about £10 per roll of film and £10 to get it developed, making 36 shots cost £20 (which is the same as one month of Adobe’s photography suite with 1TB of cloud storage).
Is Auto-Exposure Good?
That is quite a bold statement to make. Especially with the capabilities of RAW files. However, for the moment I am going to ignore RAW files (I will speak about them later on in this article). We all know of photographers from years gone by who didn't have auto exposure and took phenomenal images on film. To name a few: Fan Ho, Don McCullin, Ira Block, Annie Leibovitz, and Steve McCurry. They are in no particular order, but they all started shooting without digital cameras, and without auto-exposure. All their most distinctive shots have been taken without auto-exposure and on film.
What Happened to Photography?
An open letter to TFP (Trade for Print) First off, before I get stuck in I am sure you exist in other industries (I know you do in music under the "exposure" myth).
Why Is Wedding Photography Important?
Where to start with this... well... I am going to start some myth-busting. Mythbusting You don't need to buy film, so why does it cost that much?
Why I Shoot Film for Fun
So the N90s (or F90x) is from the mid-90s? Isn't shooting film about getting to the heart of manual exposure, and diving back to the basics of photography?
Street Photography: Warning Opinions Present!
Street photography is a really common form of photography, as it is relatively easy to get into—and it's simple to start doing it, and it comes with no guilt, as the law says you can do it.The question is, should you? Saying, "the law lets anyone photograph on the street" doesn't answer the question. Street photography is about artistically displaying, or glamorising the normal day to day events.
